(src)="11"> WORRY AND LOSS OF SLEEP BECAUSE WEALTH HAS TO BE PROTECTED .
(trg)="11"> MAN WARI TUMAS AND NO SLEEP GUD BIKOS HEM LAEK PROTECTIM RICHES BILONG HEM .

(src)="12"> “ Sweet is the sleep of the one serving , whether he eats little or much , but the plenty belonging to the rich one does not permit him to sleep . ” ​ — Ecclesiastes 5 : 12 .
